Teaching Kids About Self Pleasure + Touch

 

Stop telling your child that if someone touches their private parts, that that is "bad" touch.

Here's why.

 

Our (as in everyone's) genitalia, unless medically different, has the most concentration of nerve endings than any other part of the body. It's one of the reasons kids notice this very sensitive part of the body when they begin to have physical self-awareness.

 

This typically happens before or around the time of potty training, which is when they are transitioning to other materials covering those areas of the body (from diaper to underwear) and it makes the sensations of those areas felt more prominently.

 

As kids develop more physical self-awareness, it's natural (and normal) for a child to explore their body and those areas in particular. We don't want to shame this self-exploration/self-pleasure because it is part of healthy development and builds body positivity.

 

Kids should learn the correct anatomical names of their private parts,...

PODCAST EP 28 Confronting An Abuser + Being A Male Survivor

 

Episode Summary

It's misunderstood and underreported. CSA (child sexual abuse) is thought to be a crime against girls, but it's also a problem faced by boys and it's grossly overlooked. We must speak up collectively and unanimously. Jeremy Indika is using his voice to do so and in a powerful way!

Episode Notes

In this episode, we talk about Jeremy's story, how he confronted his abuser, what happened when he did, what it led to, and how that experience has moved him to continue being an advocate.

Jeremy's story is one of courage and defiance. It's a story of how we can look at our toxic masculinity culture and challenge it to dismantle it.

This episode is not just for male survivors, but for parents of children of all genders so we can all better understand how abuse can happen and how to protect ALL children.

I highly encourage you to check out all of Jeremy's work.

ABOUT JEREMY:

Jeremy is a male survivor of childhood sexual abuse. He spoke out for the first time when he was 27...

Episode Summary

Today is the last day of January, and the end of Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention Month, but it's certainly not the last time I'll be talking about this issue this year.

Episode Notes

In this episode I talk about:

• How I started learning about human trafficking

• The Listen Hunnay episode with Jeannie Mai and Tera Hilliard that opened my eyes

• Why trafficking IS a problem that will knock at your door in some way, shape or form if you're a parent or are a caring adult for other children in your life.

• Ways that kids can be trafficked from infant to teens

• How adults can be trafficked through dating sites

• Why we all need to band together to solve this problem
